Stairway in Baberini Museum, Rome
Palazzo Barberini was built at the beginning of the XVIIth century in the space formerly occupied by the Sforza family villa. It was the residence of Cardinal Maffeo Barberini, who will become Pope Urban VII. After Carlo Maderno’s death the building was completed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The ceiling of the Salon was frescoed by Pietro Cortona with his “Allegory of Divine Providence and Barberini Power” and is one of the most beautiful examples of baroque artwork in Rome.
(Barberini is also famous for the trademark Honey Bees which can be found all over Rome and even in The Vatican!)
